Students had the opportunity to perform for the school and community at Stacy’s dance studio on the last day of the residency.
“Students ran in to class with excitement. They practiced at home. They gained knowledge of real technical dance. Very rewarding to teach this appreciate group. ”– Stacey Dimberio, Artist.
“The show was wonderful! We had a great audience of parents, grandparents, friends and school staff -a full house! The students showed off what they had learned and the audience was impressed!” – Leigh Ann, Teacher.
